A term coined by Wearable computing pioneer Steve Mann to describe "a method of giving presentations and lectures using the WearComp system. In this method, the audience sees not the lecturer, but what the speaker is seeing, i.e. what the speaker is looking at projected on a large screen. This essentially pus the audience "inside the head" of the speaker, with whom they share a first person perspective".[1]
